Villa Kalyani is a spectacular five bedroom property resting on 2,250-square-metres of land, just one kilometre from Berawa Beach near Canggu on Bali’s south-west coast. Complete with a 22-metre swimming pool, this huge and hi-tech villa offers numerous relaxation, entertainment and recreation areas, ensuring that guests will always find a private spot for peace and quiet, somewhere to laze in the sun, to dance, to play games, or watch movies both indoors and out.
Villa Kalyani comprises a large two-storey, U-shaped building housing three bedrooms and the entertainment areas and a single-storey guest pavilion at the base of the garden with two bedrooms, a living area and a plunge pool. Between these two buildings is a 22-metre swimming pool and lawn. There are myriad entertainment areas on the first and ground floors including a formal dining room, kitchen, a games lounge with pool table and bar, a party area with professional DJ booth and dance floor and bar, a media room and sun decks both on the roof and beside the swimming pool.
Master Bedroom 1
With a high-pitched wooden ceiling suspended over hardwood floors, together with a king-size bed, comfortable soft furnishings and balconies on two sides looking out over the pool and garden, the master bedroom will induce nothing but extreme contentment for those lucky enough to draw the winning straw. The jewel in its crown, however, must be the gargantuan ensuite bathroom with its vast soaking tub and private garden.
Master Bedroom 2
Similar in size to the master bedroom, this second upstairs master room is equipped with a king-size bed and its own wrap-around terrace overlooking the pool and garden. With its earthy tones, hardwood floors, comfortable furnishings and very spacious bathroom, this suite is bound to impress.
Guest Bedroom 1
Furnished with a king-size bed which converts into twins and large ensuite bathroom compete with soaking tub, this guest bedroom is discreetly tucked away behind the dining room. The room looks out across a neat lawn to a waterwall and ornamental pond, allowing guests to drift into dream-time to the soothing sounds of falling water.
Guest Bedroom 2 & 3
Located at the far end of the garden, either side of a covered but open-sided living area, these two super-comfortable rooms have king-size beds, ensuite bathrooms and great views out over the lawn and pool. A 7 x 3 metre plunge pool adds to the luxury of this guest pavilion.
Play room & bar
Open to the garden and equipped with a pool table, a bar and a sitting area with yielding couches, this chill-out spot offers the best of both worlds for competitive types and those who prefer to simply sit back and watch.
Equipped with surround-sound system, large sofas, a Nintendo Wii and a massive projector screen (which can also be assembled for movie nights in the garden), this media room is set up to provide a gold-class home cinema experience.
There are not many villas in Bali that offer a purpose-built party space complete with a bar, professional DJ booth and dance floor. Open-sided and facing the garden Villa Kalyani’s party room is most definitely the place to get your groove on all night long. And when you need to take a break from dancing, there’s an adjacent lounge area with soft-seat couches for up to 15 people.
Centrally positioned in the main building and furnished with a large wooden table for 12 people, Villa Kalyani’s dining room can be closed off for air-conditioned comfort and provides the perfect setting in which to savour the exceptional cuisine prepared by the villa’s private chef and his team.
At the far end of the inviting, 22-metre swimming pool is a wooden deck topped with three double sun loungers. When the sun gets too much, the adjacent ‘sunken’ gazebo provides respite. It’s all especially beautiful at night when the trees and gardens are lit up and a fire bowl glows from the end of the pool.
Between the upper level master bedrooms are two fun spaces; one with a swinging cushioned daybed suspended from the ceiling, and the other presenting a wooden sundeck with two double sun loungers for private tanning.
More top-level outdoor living space can be found above guest bedrooms 2 & 3, where an expansive roof terrace offers broad views while a balé bengong (relaxation pavilion) provides shade.

Guests will be requested to provide an advance cash float for special request meals. Staff will take care of the shopping and keep receipts for reference.

FAMILIES AT VILLA KALYANI
The family friendly advantages of a villa holiday are many, including access to your own private facilities and the freedom to use them whenever you want. Knowing that the kids can run around happily, independently and safely, without you having to worry about other guests, is a real plus – and one that means parents are certain to have a more relaxed holiday too.
With the provision of games, pool toys, DVDs and Nintendo Wii, Villa Kalyani is a great villa for families with older children. Families with toddlers, however, will need to be vigilant around the pool, steep staircases, ponds and water features. For children under 7, a bouncy castle can be rented for USD50 per day.
The team of friendly staff at Villa Kalyani will make children feel as welcome as adults, and having these willing helpers on hand gives guests plenty of flexibility and freedom to do their own exploring beyond the villa grounds (full-time babysitting incurs a small extra cost).
Although the equipped kitchen allows you to prepare meals for fussy eaters or babies with ease, staff will happily to do this for you – just talk through your requirements and meal schedules with the villa manager or chef and they will take care of the rest. Pancakes by the pool for breakfast? Toasties for tea on the roof terrace? No problem. The chef can customise all meals to suit children’s taste buds.
SPA & BODY TREATMENT
Feel like a body scrub or massage? Just ask our staff to bring the spa to you! The villa has two purpose-built massage beds and we can recommend deluxe treatments carried out by the pool, the outdoor living room or in the privacy of your own room by fully trained therapists from a reputable local spa (extra charges will apply). Here’s a sample of what’s on the menu:
Release built up tension with a traditional Balinese massage. Using a combination of gentle stretches, acupressure and aromatherapy oils to stimulate the flow of blood, oxygen and energy around your body, you will feel totally relaxed in no time.
Foot reflexology is a natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet which correspond to every part of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes tension is relieved and circulation improved leaving you feeling balanced.
A full body scrub will exfoliate and hydrate your skin leaving it soft and smooth. A rejuvenating scrub combines an abrasive material such as salt, coffee, rice bran or pecan hulls with essential oils to remove any impurities and make your skin glow.
Our hands and feet work hard for us every day but rarely get the attention they deserve. Treat them to a manicure or pedicure, which usually comes with the added bonus of a quick hand or foot massage.
